She grabbed my arm tightly and dragged me down the hall. I tried fighting her but it was no use. Her angry and harsh words flooded my mind. When we got to a black door, she opened it and threw me in it. I could feel steaming tears flowing down my cheeks and onto my knees. It was pitch black. This room had no windows and was completely empty. This, was my Dark Room. I was terrified. I was only10 years old and scared of the dark. I had been thrown into the middle of the room. I could feel my breathing getting faster. I crawled back into a corner as quickly as I could and hugged my knees for dear life as I shut my eyes tight and cried. I tried thinking of something happy that could be lurking in the darkness around me. Nothing. I couldn’t think of one nice creature that would be hiding in the pitch black space around me. As I sat there crying, the voices started. That was the first time they started. They whispered sweet, reassuring things to me. I could feel my heart and my breath calming. I didn’t know who was whispering but it sounded like a lot of people whispering. I could feel their warm, caring presence.
When I finally got the nerve I said quietly, “H-hello?” the whispers stopped. They were gone. The warmth and calm that their presence gave me was now gone. The room felt empty, cold, and ruthless. I wanted them to come back so bad. I started crying again. Alone. I was completely alone and vulnerable. I wanted to get out. But I had tried a million times to get out but I couldn’t unless my mom opened the door. I had never seen this room with light. It had always been dark and black. Empty blackness.
I was still crying when I heard a soothing voice say, “Shhh child. Do not be afraid. You are safe. You are secure. Nothing will harm you.” Then the sweet, calming whispers started again. I swear I almost smiled. I had no idea who they were or what they were but they made me feel safe as their warm presence returned. It felt like they were all around me. I wiped my eyes with the ripped bottom of my navy blue dress. I sat in the warm darkness of the room listening to the whispers.
